Today is the day for the Consecration and Dedication of Immanuel Chapel! The LIVE stream begins at 10:00 AM.
The Most Reverend Katharine Jefferts Schori, the 26th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, will be the celebrant for the consecration. The Most Reverend Justin Welby, the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury, will deliver the sermon during this historic event in the 192nd year in the life of the Seminary.
The ceremony is expected to draw approximately a thousand invited guests to campus including church leaders, alumni, friends, chapel artisans, and builders. The event marks the official completion and blessing of Immanuel Chapel. The original chapel was destroyed in a fire approximately five (5) years ago.
The City of Alexandria, Virginia is asking employees, residents and community members to participate in a traffic study survey for the Duke Street and West Taylor Run areas of Alexandria.
This important survey will be used to better gauge wider input on the City’s three proposals, and to add a proposal for addressing safety on Seminary Road and Quaker Lane. The following survey seeks to achieve these goals, and will be available through October 23, 2015.
The survey results will be available on the project website at this link and takes only minutes to complete.
“Any homicide in our city is one too many; is totally unacceptable and most unfortunate. Crime will not be tolerated by our citizens and communities. We respect the high quality of life shared by all, and pleased that our crime rate is at an all time 40 year low.
This is only the second homicide year to date, and I am confident our police will be diligent in their investigation and will bring this case to a close in a timely manner. However, I would encourage our citizens to share any information they may have about this incident with the police, to assist them with this investigation.
